A SATURDAY SALUTE TO GUITAR MUSIC HEADLINED BY THE STROKES

With their first UK performance in four years, the NYC rockers The Strokes headlined the East Stage to a sold-out crowd oozing with New York Cool. A triumphant return to UK shores, the band performed to their second home with the London audience filling Victoria Park - hits ‘Heart in a Cage’ and ‘You Only Live Once’ the highlights.

The Raconteurs also travelled across the pond for a rare London show - their first UK festival slot in over eight years - featuring ‘Salute Your Solution’ ‘Steady As She Goes’ and ‘Broken Boy Soldier’ which they revamped with an interlude from ‘Schools Out For The Summer’ by Alice Cooper.

National treasure Johnny Marr played much-loved The Smiths songs to the joy of the audience who sang along in delight to classics such as ‘Big Mouth Strikes Again’, ‘How Soon Is Now’ and even ‘This Charming Man’.

Interpol headlined the North Stage performing a hits-packed set with much of the set coming from second album ‘Antics’ while Fat White Family opened the proceedings with a boisterous performance and bare-chested frontman Lias even dived into the crowd during ‘I am Mark E Smith’.

There were plenty of rising stars to watch too with garage rock trio Demob Happy opening the festival to much applause, hotly tipped Amyl And The Sniffers provided an energetic main stage performance and Dream Wife thanked The Strokes for the inspiration speaking to the crowd on the North Stage “This line-up is ridiculous! I fell in love with music after listening to The Strokes”.
